The music and fashion mogul gave birth to a daughter, Birdie Mae Johnson, on March 19, weighing in at 10 pounds and 13 ounces. Simpson has two other children with Johnson: a five-year-old son, Ace Knute, and six-year-old daughter, Maxwell Drew. “We are so happy and proud to announce the birth of our perfect daughter, Birdie Mae Johnson,” she posted to Instagram.
Simpson revealed on Instagram back in September that she and Johnson were expecting. “SURPRISE,” Simpson wrote, alongside pics of her two children with pink balloons. “This little baby girl will make us a family of five. We couldn’t be happier to announce this precious blessing of life.”
Though Birdie’s name is unique, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Simpson’s baby shower had “Birdie’s Nest” written in neon lights, and she captioned several of her Instagram posts with it. Fans put two and two together.
Then on March 3, Simpson foreshadowed the name even more in an Instagram post about dealing with bronchitis while pregnant. “After a week in the hospital for bronchitis (my fourth time in 2 months), I’m finally home,” she posted. “Coughing with Birdie has been a crazy painful journey. I am slowly getting healthier every day. Baby girl was monitored and is doing amazing! 🙏🏼 I am on my way to healthy and counting down the days to see her sweet smile. Sending love and prayers to all the mothers who are going or have gone through this. OUCH.”
Simpson actually posted several things like this throughout her pregnancy. She was quite transparent about the struggles she experienced—from breaking a toilet seat to feet swelling. “Any remedies?! Help!!!!” Simpson posted in January, talking about the latter issue.
Stay tuned for a photo of little Birdie Mae. Queen Jessica Simpson is quite open on Instagram, so it shouldn’t be long. Congrats to both her and Johnson!
